Ferritin plays important roles in iron storage, detoxification, and immune response. Here, a ferritin gene (PcFer) was identified in Procambarus clarkii, an economically important freshwater crayfish. Full-length PcFer cDNA was 1022-bp, including a 135-bp 5'-untranslated region (UTR) with a typical iron responsive element, a 374-bp 3'-UTR, and a 513-bp open(More)
This study was performed to better understand the phylogenetic relationships within the lepidopteran superfamily Noctuoidea. The mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) has been extensively used for studying phylogenetic relationships at different taxonomic levels. In this study, the complete mitogenome of Spilarctia subcarnea (Noctuoidea: Erebidae) was sequenced(More)
In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Clostera anachoreta (Lepidoptera: Notodontidae) was sequenced. It comprises 15,456 base pairs (bp), including 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), two ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs), 22 transfer RNAs (tRNAs) and one non-coding control region (CR), as found in other lepidopterans. Gene order is identical to(More)
Yellow catfish (Pelteobagrus fulvidraco) is one of the most important economic freshwater species in China. However, infection by bacterial pathogenic diseases has caused high mortality and great economic loss in aquaculture. It is necessary for disease control to know more about the P. fulvidraco immune system and its related genes in response to bacterial(More)
Antheraea pernyi is a commercially cultivated silk moth and a source of insect food with high-quality protein. Insects suffer oxidative stress on exposure to heavy metals, and reactive oxygen species are cleared by antioxidant enzymes. To gain better understanding of the antioxidant defense system of A. pernyi, we analyzed transcriptomes of pupae after(More)
Mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) is very important to understand molecular evolution and phylogenetics. Herein, in this study, the complete mitogenome of Sesarmops sinensis was reported. The mitogenome was 15,905 bp in size, and contained 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), two ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes, 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes, and a control region(More)
The mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) can provide information for phylogenetic analyses and evolutionary biology. We sequenced, annotated, and characterized the mitogenome of Euproctis similis. The complete mitogenome is 15,437bp in length, containing 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 22 transfer RNA genes, two ribosomal RNA genes, and a control region(More)
Deciphering the animal mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) is very important to understand their molecular evolution and phylogenetic relationships. In this study, the complete mitogenome of Clistocoeloma sinensis was determined. The mitogenome of C. sinensis was 15,706 bp long, and its A+T content was 75.7%. The A+T skew of the mitogenome of C. sinensis was(More)
The mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) provides important information for phylogenetic analysis and understanding evolutionary origins. Herein, we sequenced, annotated, and characterised the mitogenome of the crab Helice wuana to better understand its molecular evolution and phylogeny. The 16,359bp mitogenome includes 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 22(More)
The yellow catfish, Pelteobagrus fulvidraco, has been recognized as an important freshwater aquaculture species in Eastern and Southeast Asia. To gain a better understanding of the immune response in P. fulvidraco, we analyzed its transcriptome following stimulation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Phosphate buffer saline (PBS) was used as control. Following(More)
